Adjusting my medication has been a challenge. I signed up with One Drop when they had a promotional offer before Christmas. Though right now, I want to maximize my insurance benefits.
Since I had been using the Medtronic sensor, and because I was hoarding supplies, I have quite a bit of test strips – and infusion sets, etc.
OneDrop has been helping me on using test strips and I’ll use it to insure I keep getting enough test strips – right now I’m limited to 4 a day
Anyway, when I first went on Victoza, I had a few lows. The first change was to drop basal dosages by half and stop bolusing for meals. The OneDrop system helped me realize that wasn’t working, I was running high. For me, that’s a problem because it makes me crave carbs too much. So I tried bolusing half the rate I was. That works really well.
It took me a while to figure out that everything syncs, on the iPhone. I have no idea if it does on Android.
It’s pretty easy to get that to work, I had the activity tracking on my Apple Watch working first – it was pretty easy to figure out, since I added OneDrop to one of my sources in Apple Health, and turned on all the categories. I was logging my food with OneDrop that works pretty well. It has most of the food I eat, even Jenny Craig, and can use the camera to read bar codes. But I’m already a premium member with MyFitnessPal. Guess what, if you have all your MyFitnessPal set up as a source and have all the categories turned on, that data will sync in OneDrop and you only have to log in one place.
Guess what – my scale will Sync too. I have Nokia scale which talks to my WiFi. Again, I had to go to sources, add it and make sure that all the categories are turned on.
And their Apple Watch app is nice – I can log blood sugar checks and bolus adjustments with it.
